friend on the occasion of her 90th birthday.
Born on a farm in the Canadian prairies she has
lived a very full and interesting life that she
has chronicled in a wonderful book.
A veteran of WW II she continues to lead
a very active and independent life.
Most of her life she went by the name of Kay.
Being of Ukrainian heritage in those days
many of her siblings and friends had their
names arbitrarily changed by a grade
school teacher on their first day at school
because they where considered too unusual
and hard to pronounce! When she told us
this story several years ago we have always
called her by her birth name 'Catrina' which
always brings a smile to her face.
